Message: I am so heartbroken to learn of Mrs. Washburn's passing. She was not just a Spanish teacher to so many of us. She truly cared for her students and made them feel comfortable not only in the classroom, but in school in general. She showed so many of us what true, unconditional love was. She was truly one in a million. That all translated into her animal rescue work as well!!! To Mr. Neil, Rob, and Will - I am so sorry for your loss. Your wife and mother was an amazing human being and will be missed by all of us who were truly blessed to know and love her. I will continue to pray for peace, comfort, and understanding for you guys.

Message: Me llamo Enrique, y me gusta comer chicharrones. That's about all I remember of Spanish II, but I will never forget Beth's laugh, her love of pups, and the compassion she had for every student. Her memory will live on through everyone who is kind and generous with their time. Will and Rob, love you guys. You have saint DNA and don't forget it

Message: I knew Beth through her work with Rescue Road and I am heart-broken, along with all of her family and friends. She was a very loving and special person and I am blessed to have known her and shared some foster dogs with her, including the puppy I have now who Beth bottle fed before I got her. She is an amazing gal and we will miss her, as I know you will. Neil, you and your sons are in my prayers. RIP Beth - there's no one else like you.

Message: No other educator made as significant an impact on me than her. She took us to Mexico which sparked a lifelong love of Spanish, leading me to minor in Spanish and pursue higher degrees. I thank God for her being a part of my path.
